Quoting Buzz and Almond Joys momm:" I'd cringe for sure. I don't think they are brave- they are flaunting it- I would find them brave if they wore something more modest as to not seek attention."
Some people like their bodies that way, I don't get it but I know some like to be considered "BBW". I suppose they have the right to "flaunt it" as much as a fit or skinny girl does.
I hate to see really big women in shorts and shirt (over their suit) swimming. I've been there, it's so damn uncomfortable!
